As part of THR's Actress Roundtable, Emma Stone and Mary J. Blige also discuss their dream co-stars.

Jennifer Lawrence and Jessica Chastain have the same "cinematic crush."

For The Hollywood Reporter's Actress Roundtable, six of today's most in-demand actresses — Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Jessica Chastain, Mary J. Blige, Allison Janney and Saoirse Ronan — sat down to discuss what actor, living or dead, they would most like to work with. 

Lawrence, of mother!, said that while she has many actors she'd still love to work with, her top choice is Bill Murray. She and Chastain also fought over their love of Gary Oldman when Chastain said that he was one of her favorites, because "since I was a little kid, he is someone that, when you watch from performance to performance — he doesn't look like himself."

"I said that earlier, so I want to say I think Jessica stole that from me," Lawrence replied in response to Chastain's answer. 

"Um, in 2012, I did an interview where I said he was my cinematic crush!" Chastain, starring in Molly's Game, joked. 

Stone, star of Battle of the Sexes, went with two of her favorites, saying, "If I don't do something with Diane Keaton before the end of time, I don't know what I'll do. She is my everything. I love her. I talk about her a little bit too much. I also absolutely love Hank Azaria. He is criminally underrated and brilliant."

Blige, who shifts from music to film for Mudbound, named several dream collaborators, including Frank Sinatra, Angela Bassett and Janney "because she is just amazing in Juno. She made me laugh till I cried."
